's an easy company for main street america to hate. so now all of a sudden all of this attention on, you know, potentially, allegedly goldman sachs defrauding its investors. and this gets washington angry and rightly so. it gets main street america angry. and people are saying, something has got to be done. that's when the politicians step in. >> i'm trying to do a whole show on the anger is out of control but yet in this instance. okay. i'm a guy paying my bills, paying my credit card bills. as i understand this, billionaire john paulson, okay? who basically gets in bed with goldman sachs and says i'm going to go out and find the worst mortgages i can find. you're going to help me put this product together. i'm going to bet against it. ha ha. by the way other guys at goldman sachs go out and sell it to your customers while i'm shorting it. how do they explain that as anything other than fraud? the fact that paulson was putting this product together? >> i don't think he possibly can. >> aren't they saying every institution bets on both sides? >> in other words you've got a situation where peo

on a playground. >> no administration in america's history would ever have considered such a step we just found out president obama is supporting today. you know, that's kind of like getting out there on the playground, a bunch of kids ready to fight and one of the kids saying, go ahead, punch me in the face and i'm not going to retaliate. no. it's unacceptable. this is another thing that the american public, the more that they find out what is a part of it agenda, they're going to rise up and they're going to say no more. national defense, national security is the number one job of the federal government. >> that woman is an idiot. earlier on abc's "world news tonight," the president asked by george stephanopoulos to respond to sarah palin. >> i really have no response to that. last i checked, sarah palin's not much of an expert on nuclear issues. >> all right. he put it better than i did. let's turn to richard bert, former ambassador to germy, the u.s.'s first negative negotiate yater for the first s.t.a.r.t. treaty signed by president bush in 1991. he is not u.s. chairman of global zero, an
into a socialist united states. today, the heritage foundation said that america is no longer a free nation. it's a mostly free nation. they rank countries every year and dropped america, so now, we're living in a not so free united states according to the heritage foundation, so people are picking up on this. there was a lot of anticipation about what the health care bill would do. they're already acting as if it's the worst case scenario. first, we had obama, the foreigner, the guy wasn't born here, coming in and taking over the government. and now, he's imposing soci socialism. there is a -- this has become the battle front for people who are worried about the very nature of this country. >> steve? >> one thing i think we've got to keep in mind, this didn't start with health care. remember the 2008 campaign, the fall of 2008, where you had people showing up at obama rallies, republican crowds calling him a socialist, saying this was a beginning of communism in the united states. that was before he proposed health care. one thing we try to understand the motivation on the right, i think what
, we will strengthen america's leadership here on earth. >> wow. you know, what jacqueline kennedy wanted to have as a memorial to her president when he was killed, besides the eternal flame, she wanted one other thing, senator. i'm telling you, i tell everybody, i just dug this up. she wanted to have jack's signature, she wanted bob mcnamara, the secretary of defense, just to write jack's name on the next saturn rocket, one that was going to beat the soviets in the next fight, in the next race to space. that's all she wanted for her husband who had been killed. your final thought, we're going to be the leader in space, right? >> it's part of our destiny as an american people. we are by nature explorers and adventurers, we've always had a frontier. that's why people down here were upset, chris, when they thought the president had canceled the manned program. but i think he showed he has that vision for us to fulfill our destiny of exploring the heavens. >> it's great to have you on. i mean that, really, senator ben nelson of florida, sir, an honor to have you on tonight. >>> coming
to obey the laws. that's where these ideas came from. >> but the united states of america -- >> don't deny the truth of this history. >> don't deny all of it is my point, pat. >> why are republicans in the south, like rick perry talking about succession, why are they talking about nullification? why is bill mccomb running down there for governor? this is the lynn ingo of the ci war fight? why are they ripping off the scab of the civil war? >> because it's becoming a dislike, and a lot of people are coming to detest their government -- >> the north. >> no, not the north. the government of the united states. >> they like their state governors and they don't like the national governments, that's right. there is a real feeling of people that they don't like this government. >> who was right in the civil war? >> i think in a way both sides were right. lincoln had a right to save the union. i think they had a right to go free. >> you cannot defend the right to slavery. >> robert e. lee was right to defend his fellow -- >> maybe if guys like him would have stood up and stuck with the union. if yo

opinion. this gets back to this anger in america concept that seems so prevalent now. you've got to ask, why was goldman creating these securities and puts people in a position to have to defend them after the fact. i don't think that's necessary hi fair to goldman sachs to have to put them in that position. they believed they were helping their clients, but it just didn't look good. >> well, not only doesn't look good, but makes people feel that this is the smoking gun. accurately or not, people feel that tells you everything you need to know about the way wall street is operating. this is what lloyd blankfein had to say -- there's reporting today "the new york times" that in fact, the investigators are now looking at how high up this actually went and whether all the way up to the ceo there were people involved, top executives at goldman who signed off on what this one man was doing. >> but if i understand what we've heard so far about the core of goldman's defense, it won't have to do with who in the firm knew about it, but the merits of the case. whether that was a material fact tha
america to see. see, they're the base. they're old. they're angry. they're white. they're scared. they're misinformed. they watch fox. they live in the bullet-point culture. let me give you something real ease city to understand here tonight. if you're watching, you righties. barack obama has an "f" rating. meaning fail. suck. bad. an "f" rating from the brady campaign against gun violence. now, i want the informationally-challenged voters to listen very close to me when i say this tonight. that president obama does not want your gun, and i think you should understand that. he hasn't proposed a single thing that would infringe on your second-amendment rights. not one. not one thing. the more people that buy into this anti-government nonsense coming from the right, the cloclos cloclos closer we're going to get to another oklahoma city. if we face another anti-government attack like the one we saw 15 years ago i think we could spiral out of the control. there could be a lot of civil unrest in this country for no reason. only because we in the media seem to focus on this. and i'm doing it
to america? you know, it's going to take hard enforcement. it's going to take tough security, and it's going to have to take an amnesty program that streamlines the process. i have to share this with you. pie wife and i this winter, we purchased a canadian fishing lodge because, well, i'm addicted to fishing. i just love it, you know. and this has been a real education for us trying to do business in another country. now, i am convinced -- i have nothing against the canadians, they are wonderful people, but, folks, we're supposed to get along. and we treat each other -- the canadians and the united states treat each other like we're criminals. we do. i foe -- i'm starting to feel how the mexican folks right now and there's so much red tape and there are so many hoops you have to jump through, it's almost easier to do it illegally. i know why they're coming across the border because there's just so much stuff you got to do to work with america, there's so much stuff you got to do with work with canadians. can't we have some international summit or should we say a summit of countries in this h
it to believe it. we're back here after this. somewhere in america... the slightest breeze harbors immense power. the tallest buildings leave the lightest footprints. a fifty-ton train makes barely a mark on the environment. and a country facing climate change finds climate solutions. somewhere in america, we've already answered some of the nation's toughest questions. and the over sixty thousand people of siemens are ready to do it again. siemens. answers. breaking up is hard to do. so allstate will do it for you. switch to allstate, and your new agent will... help tell your old insurance company goodbye. saving you that uncomfortable breakup moment. and serious cash. drivers who switched saved an average of $396 a year. $473 if they dumped geico. breaking up is easy to do. ♪ remember when that's allstate's stand. are you in good hands? ♪ i was just in town for a few days and i was wondering if i could say hi to the doctor. - is he in? - he's in copenhagen. - oh, well, that's nice. - but you can still see him. - you just said he was in-- - copenhagen. - come on. - that's pretty far. - doc,
like never forget, miners keep america's lights on. but then saying we've got to not let this happen again. and so we expect to hear the president say we can't bring back the lives of these 29 miners lost. we can do everything possible to avoid such a tragedy happening in the future. alex? >> and the president doing so on the heels of at least getting a little bit of a break with his wife there in north carolina. we weren't given a lot of details about what they were doing. they want to have the press following them around but seems like a good break for them? >> reporter: the press was able to follow in the motorcade, kept at a little bit of a distance but every now and then you got a glimpse of them. the president and first lady went without their daughters but they were able to spend time with friends who flew in from chicago so they've had dinners and golf and that sort of thing. >> a little grown-up time. athena jones at the white house. >>> msnbc will air the president's remarks at the memorial, our coverage begins at 3:00 p.m. eastern for you today. >>> a newly released group
states. today, the heritage foundation the conservative think tank here said america is no longer a free nation. it's a mostly free nation. they rank countries every year and they dropped america. so now we're living in a not so free united states according to the heritage foundation. people are picking up on this and their paranoia is really kicking in. there was a lot of anticipation about what the health care bill would do. no one is waiting to see that. they're already acting as if it was the worst-case scenario. first, we had obama, the foreigner, the guy wasn't born here, coming in and taking over the government. creating a regime as rush limbaugh calls it. now he's imposing socialism. anybody who lives in a socialist country, whether europe or any place else would be laughing at this as a notion of socialism. there is a -- this -- this has become the battle front for people who are worried about the very nature of this country. i think a lot of the worry isseisser is irrational. >> steve? >> one thing i think we've got to keep in mind, this didn't start with health care. remember
negative. the global standing of america is in the words of the polling company's chairman, clearly on the rise. obviously it's the obama effect. people like our president. in fact, he's the most popular leader in the world. so what are we going to do with this renewed world leadership? one thing we should do is lead. tonight we had james cameron on the show. he gave us the most successful movie in history which tells what the people of this planet have exploited it so badly, abused its natural resources to the breaking point, then head to other worlds to find the means of sustaining life. it's what happens when mankind abuses the habitat in which he was born. a half century ago an american statesman addressed this very issue, quote, we travel together, passengers on a little space ship dependent on its reserves of air and soil, all committed for our safety to its security and peace, preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and i will say, the love we give our fragile craft. that was adlai stevenson the american ambassador the to the united nations speaking in geneva
's not an after thought in america's quest for a brighter future. it is an essential part of that quest. so today i'd like to talk about the next chapter in this story. the challenges facing our space program are different and our imper tifs for this program are different than in decades past. we're no longer racing against an adversary. we're no longer competing to achieve a singular goal like reaching the moon. in fact, what was once a global competition has long since become a global collaboration. while the measure of our achievements has changed a great deal over the past 50 years, what we do or fail to do in seeking new frontiers is no less consequential for our future in space and here on earth. so let me start by being extremely clear. i am 100% committed to the mission of nasa and its future. [ applause ] because broadening our capabilities in space will continue to serve our society in ways we can scarcely imagine. because exploration will once more inspire wonder in a new generation, sparking passions and launching careers, and because ultimately if we fail to press forward in the purs

"hardball" is next. good night. >>> tea time. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, tea for who? what are the tea party people up to? good question. they rallied in boston today home of the original party and sarah palin got the crowd going by saying she doesn't mean to say president obama's downright un-american, just his policies are. richard nixon was good at this sort of thing. there are those who say the supreme court is communist. i wouldn't say that. she's playing the same old trick like saying it's time to reload but i'm not talking about guns. keep throwing out the red meat but denying she's got her brand on it. what are these tea party leaders up to? that's our top story tonight. >>> perfect timing. bill maher is with us tonight. he's got things to say about ex-governor palin and her unmerry cotillon of tea timers. plus are, republicans pretending to prote

is horrendous for america every day as retirees, students and middle-class-teams suffer, it is unbelievably good for bank profits. you have a rigged game in which all the money comes to you. of course, a portion of those ill-gotten profits do have to go to politicians and lobbyists. so that they can keep this legal. and that is the most formidable foe we face, america. 1500 wall street lobbyists as we speak, descending on washington to fight senator blanche lincoln's derivatives reform, simply because it calls for everything to be done in public. a transparent exchange, kind of like the stock market, it's crazy. fixing our financial system requires two things -- an actual plan to insure banks don't get too big to fail. and the courage to actually do it. join joining us now, republican senator, bob corker of tennessee, a member of the banking committee. senator corker, how do we end too big to fail, in your opinion? >> well, you've raised a lot of issues here, dylan, it's good to see you here on the camera. look, at the end of the day, one of the things i think you do have to have in place, is a
states of america can do. and we are not going to impose any kind of peace upon palestine and israel and that is that. it was a surprising, considering what we've been reading, chris, about the possibility of the united states might lay out what we think are the basic outlines of a just and lasting peace. my guess today would be we're not going to do it. >> the question i guess is for the israelis to answer. they have to answer it in the first instance before we get to it. we could suggest an alternative over there. mr. mayor, it seems to me this is the challenge. israel has to unite the moderate arab world such as it is. jordan, the saudis, the egypt n egyptians, all the emirates. it has to get them on their side against iran in terms of iran's nuclear threat. they can't do that step unless they can find something over palestine, right? so the irony is they may have to give something in terms of the middle east situation in order to build the kind of armada, if you will, diplomatic armada they need to shut down the iranian nuclear threat. do you think that's a tradeoff they're thin
